VACAVILLE — Smoke and haze in a Vacaville movie theater sent patrons to the parking lot Sunday afternoon.

Vacaville and Fairfield firefighters responded at approximately 1:30 p.m. to Brenden Theatres, 531 Davis St., after a report of a commercial structure fire, said Vacaville Battalion Chief Steve Bowman.

Responders found haze in movie theater No. 16, Bowman said, and the entire building was evacuated.

Debbie Carro and her husband were watching the previews before the movie “Jobs” when the theater lights were turned on and the movie stopped.

“All of a sudden everything just turned off,” said the Suisun City woman.

The couple evacuated and waited outside in their vehicle, hoping to return to the theater.

“I’m not going to be thwarted,” Carro said.

It was the couple’s first date in 11 years, she said with a laugh.

After the investigation, fire officials were unable to locate the source of the haze but suspect it resulted from an electrical problem in a light ballast or the heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit, Bowman said.

Fire officials wrapped up about 2:30 p.m. and turned the investigation over to theater management. The theater reopened at 4 p.m. Sunday, according to a member of the Brenden Theatres staff.
